by Nicci French

Penguin Books | March 25, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Tuesday's Gone: A Frieda Klein Mystery is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.
“A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller” (Kirkus Reviews) from the bestselling author of Blue Monday

Nicci French’s first Frieda Klein mystery, Blue Monday, won rave reviews everywhere—from People magazine to the New York Times Book Review—and earned comparisons to bestsellers by Kate Atkinson and Laura Lippman. In Tuesday’s Gone, the solitary London psychotherapist returns in a brilliant thriller even more twisted than the last.

On a routine home visit, a London social worker discovers her psychotic client serving tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. Unable to make sense of the woman’s confused ramblings, Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson asks Frieda Klein for help uncovering the dead man’s identity. Frieda soon learns that he was a notorious con man—one Robert Poole. But Frieda can’t help feeling that Poole was killed to embroil her in the investigation, that her past isn’t done with her yet. And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tuesday's Gone I have just discovered this author and this is the second of a series that is spellbinding. A mystery set in London, a detective and a psychotherapist who are trying to find answers make for an interesting story. This is the second Frieda Klein mystery and I suggest the reader starts with Monday Blues where the main characters are introduced. I immediately ordered the Wednesday book. Hard to put down!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as great as the first one, but still a good read! I really enjoyed French’s debut in the Frieda Klein series, Blue Monday, when it came out last year. I was really excited to have the opportunity to review the second book in this series. Psychotherapist Frieda Klein crosses paths again with Chief Inspector Karlsson when he asks her to speak with a murder suspect who is clearly mentally unstable. The dead body of a naked man is found in the home of Michelle Doyce, who says that she has been caring for him. It appears that she has bathed him and put lipstick on him, and she leaves tea and food for him to eat. It is all just a little bit strange. Frieda has to get into Michelle’s mind to determine what has happened and to figure out the identity of the victim. Unravelling that ball of yarn leads to even more questions. Meanwhile, the threat of Dean Reeve (the antagonist from Blue Monday) is still in the air. Frieda revisits Dean’s wife (and victim), Terry Reeve (aka Joanna Vine), who has now authored a tell-all novel about how she was victimized not just by her captor/husband but also by her trusted therapist. Frieda also has to deal with the fall-out from that. Frieda is still torn up over ex-lover Sandy’s move to the United States and, when he says he wants her back, she isn’t sure how to deal with it. She is also drawn into the family problems involving her niece, Chloe, and sister-in-law, Olivia. There are also sections of the book that are narrated by an unknown woman in a boat, which adds to the mystery. In summary, there is a lot going on in Tuesday’s Gone but French manages to connect the dots between all of the story-lines. Not only are we getting to know Frieda on a deeper level in this second book in the series, but many of the secondary characters as well, including: Josef, Reuben, Olivia, and Chloe. The ending was a big shock to me that I didn’t see coming, and I recall that French did that to me as well with Blue Monday. I love it when an author can surprise me like that, and it makes me very eager for the next book in the series, Waiting for Wednesday, which is due to be released later this month. Overall, I enjoyed Tuesday’s Gone, but not as much as I did its predecessor, Blue Monday, which I thought was much more dire and suspenseful. A good deal of Tuesday’s Gone involves unfinished business from Blue Monday, so you would definitely want to read the series in order. I was so pleased that Beth Chalmers narrated this book as well because I loved her narration for Blue Monday. She is very engaging, and I think she portrays Frieda perfectly. Her vocal variations are distinctive, which makes it very easy to follow which character is speaking. I received this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for TUESDAY''S GONE: "A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller." — Kirkus "Seamlessly mixes a foreboding tone and deliberate pacing with deft plot twists that should leave readers pleasantly chilled to the bone." — Publishers Weekly "Starts as a grim psychological thriller in the vein of Dennis Lehane’s darker novels and turns into a fascinating puzzle in which character analysis holds sway. Highly recommended for fans of psychological suspense who enjoy a complex protagonist." — Library Journal (starred review) "The plotting is fast-paced with surprises galore, and characters literally come to life on the pages. . . . When readers are through, they will find themselves waiting impatiently for Wednesday to arrive!" — Suspense Magazine "If you are looking for wickedly inventive crime fiction, you need look no further than the writing team of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French . . . Unless you are into tension, paranoia and burning the midnight oil to finish a book, don’t embark on reading Tuesday’s Gone after suppertime!" — BookPage " Tuesday’s Gone is one of those great, great books in the mystery genre wherein the more you know, the less you know—peel back one stratum and you cannot shovel fast enough to get into the next, which reveals anything but what you expected. French takes the novel on a number of unexpected twists and turns, not the least of which relates back to BLUE MONDAY, which, as it turns out,
